Chili Sauce Substitute – Homemade Chili Sauce

How to Make Chili Sauce

I use chili sauce about once a year I thinkĀ and it usually seems to be for some spontaneous recipe. Rather than keep a bottle on hand I’ve learned to mix it up myself. I always have cans of tomato sauce on hand (or bags of homemade tomato sauce in the freeze).

So next time you need a bottle of chili sauce and forgot to buy it (or can’t find it), use this substitute. It’s faster to whip this up than make a special trip to the grocery store!

Homemade Chili Sauce

  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 Tbs. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs. vinegar
  • dash of cloves
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1 Tbs. chili powder
  1. Simmer all the ingredients together for 5 minutes, stirring periodically.
